Greenwich AeroGroup is offering demonstrations of LiveTV’s satellite communications LiveAero Wi-Fi broadband data and voice system in its booth (No. C4711). The Wichita-based supplier is also demonstrating AirSatOne’s FlightStream AOC compression, acceleration and shared caching product with the LiveAero system.

The LiveAero system is powered by Iridium’s OpenPort Aero broadband service, leveraging Iridium’s worldwide network of 66 orbiting satellites. It allows users to stay connected via Wi-Fi to their smartphone, tablet or laptop from takeoff to landing and pole-to-pole, anywhere in the world.

LiveAero provides speeds up to 300 kbps and features three independent phone lines, allowing simultaneous voice and data connectivity. According to Greenwich, this unique satellite configuration and antenna design allows the signal to be received under the helicopter main rotor, permitting signal connectivity throughout the flight.

Greenwich has already received an STC for the system on Bombardier’s 601-3A/3R, 604 and 605 models.
